I just bought a Sony W7 yesterday. As my previous Sony camera was not equipped with optical zoom lens, I did not know much about optical zoom lens.

My problem is when I switched between camera mode and playback mode, the optical zzom lens took a whole 12-13 seconds to retract! I expect that the len will retract as soon as, if not fast when I switch from camera to playback mode.

I really hope that this is not a problem (but it seems like a problem to me).

Is there anything wrong with my new camera. Can users of W7 or digital cameras with optical zoom lens please give comments?

Thank you very much.
